WR 121 - Intro to Academic Writing
This is the fundamental course for all writing students. It emphasizes defining and developing a significant topic and using principles of clear thinking to support an assertive thesis. Students should understand their subject matter, audience, purpose, and point-of-view, and demonstrate that understanding through the organization and development of essays. Students should analyze and evaluate other writers' work to sharpen their critical abilities as readers and writers. Because some students may go directly from WR 121 to WR 123, instructors will assign at least one argumentative essay and introduce basic principles of argumentation and research. Also available through Distance Learning.
